Game 36: Ubaldo Jimenez vs. Zach Duke

New, 512 comments

The Rockies have a chance today to win a series from the Pirates on the road in this morning's rubber match. In rubber matches this season, the Rockies have gone 2-4...a big reason they've only won two series outright this year. They have also yet to win the first two games of a series, but they'll try to remedy that against the Braves in an upcoming four game set.
